in its fourth generation
For the coldest of nights and for the most intrepid weather: the new Mammut Eiger Extreme Series, in its now fourth generation, sets superior standards in terms of alpine mountain sports apparel. The entire collection stands for uncompromising quality, high visibility for more safety on the mountain and guaranteed function.
Eiger Extreme Series and its famous namesake
For Mammut, the Eiger is the best development lab in the world. It’s right at Mammut’s front door. Right there, in the mountain’s wall, professionals have tested every part of the new Eiger Extreme collection under extreme conditions and improved it until it met every detail of Mammut’s Absolute Alpine criteria. 25,000 hours flowed into the development of a total of 25 new products. The rise of this extreme class – started here, right at the face of the Eiger.
From Mammut Extreme to Eiger Extreme series
The Eiger Extreme e.g Mammut Extreme series has been around since 1995 and with each generation it only gets better. Since its introduction, it has experienced exciting times and has become a high-alpine flagship for Mammut. Today, known as Eiger Extreme, the products right from the start, have stood for top function and quality.
Even before 1995, Mammut was a globally recognized brand for mountain sports hardware. Ropes, climbing harnesses, carabiners and slings dominated and defined the company’s profile. A first textile highlight was Mammut’s pioneer in the field of softshell clothing with its high-altitude and ski-touring ski collection made from Swiss Schoeller Stretch Fabrics. The wide range of jackets and backpacks, however, was perceived only to a limited extent by the public.
- 1995: Mammut Extreme marked the turning point from that of a hardware brand to a complete outdoor supplier and gave Mammut a name in the apparel sector. The products were designed from the outset for extreme high alpine use and are aimed primarily at mountaineers and professional alpinists.
1999: On September 9th &10th in 1999, four professional mountaineers; Evelyne Binsack, Stephan Siegrist, Hansruedi Gertsch and Ralf Dujmovits were broadcast on live Swiss television as they climbed the 1800 meter-high Eiger-northern wall. Binsack and Siegrist were both wearing Mammut Extreme. The large project moderated by Röbi Koller marked a milestone not only for Mammut, but also for Swiss television. The close connection between Extreme and the Eiger was an integral part of this point. Worldwide, mountain sports photographers discovered the vibrance of the Extreme Series and used the striking colours of the clothing against the gray and white background of high alpine environment. For the first time, alpinists were in the spotlight.
- 2006: After a good ten years of success, another major reissue of the Mammut Extreme was launched in 2006. With contemporary materials and cuts, the myth was revived and modernized. However, the high Alpine basic orientation and the demands in innovation and material remained the same. In regard to function, the diametrical developments of the product weight and the abrasion resistance of the materials used were particularly evident. Thus the same, if not even better weather protection and abrasion resistance were achieved with significantly lighter and smoother materials than before. Alpinists also noticed an increase in comfort and an improvement in freedom of movement.
2011: The world-famous 3-constellation Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau including the Eiger’s intrepid north face, are embodiments of the Extreme collection. With the release of the second generation in 2011, Mammut presented a comprehensive collection, which was completely redesigned in terms of color and technology and adapted to the requirements of the modern alpinist. Together with selected partners, the products were developed according to the latest state of the art in order to guarantee the best quality and functionality.
- 2017: The new Mammut Eiger Extreme collection sets standards with its latest and fourth generation within alpine sport apparel. From high-alpine expeditions, ski touring right up to ice climbing – it offers the perfect product system for extreme scenarios. Functionality, lightness and design are linked not only to its past successes: similar to the first generation in 1995, it defines the change of mountain sports and is actively shaping it. Amongst other things, the complete clothing line is available for both men and women.
